1 Place all the ingredients, except the cider and maple syrup, in a
saucepan and heat, stirring well until the lemon juice starts to sizzle.
2 Add the cider and maple syrup and continue to heat over a low
to medium flame for 10 – 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Do not allow to boil.
3 Pour your liquid through a fine strainer to remove the cloves, cinnamon stick and any other solids.
4 This will keep in the fridge for up to three days and can simply be
reheated and served when required. It’s also delicious chilled and
served over ice!
5 For a non-alcoholic alternative, replace the cider with one litre of
good quality, cloudy, fresh apple juice.
